A Vacation for Everyone

HeadWaters Resort & Casino will transform Norfolk into a premier tourist destination in the mid-Atlantic. HeadWaters will be located on approximately 14 acres of land east of Harbor Park along the banks of the Elizabeth River and be operated by the Pamunkey Indians, who are native Virginians. Tourists will be able to quickly and easily access the resort and casino off Interstate-264. The tourist destination is estimated to generate 6.2 million annual visits, which will have a substantial economic impact on the City of Norfolk.

  • Luxurious spa

  • Multiple pools (both indoor and outdoor)
  • On-site restaurants including a sports bar, steakhouse and international cuisine
  • Waterfront views

Norfolk Wins Big

HeadWaters will not only be an exciting and entertaining destination, but it will provide much needed economic benefits for Norfolk. Local taxes on the casino will assist Norfolk in supporting key priorities determined by the City and its residents, such as education, first responders, street repair and flood mitigation. And a significant portion of the state taxes from the casino will go to school construction. The Pamunkey Indian Tribe also plans to contribute to Norfolk’s flood resiliency plan along the Elizabeth River, making the Tribe the first private developer to do so. On top of all this, HeadWaters will not be accepting any tax incentives or rebates, development grants or subsidies of any kind from the City of Norfolk.

Estimated economic benefits from the casino include:
  • $50 million for school construction
  • 2,000+ construction jobs
  • 2,480 permanent jobs
  • $30 million in annual tax revenue for Norfolk
  • 6.2 million annual visitors
  • $850 million annual economic impact
  • $100 million in annual employee earnings
